Thousands have been affected by the Cameroon Anglophone crisis, which has forced many into Nigeria, it’s West African neighbor.
Recent events have seen a steady increase in violence between the Cameroon Francophone state forces and English- speaking separatists. This conflict is slowly generating unrest and has already splintered families, rendering people sleeping open air and without access to basic provisions of life as refugees in Nigeria.
More than 25,000 people have crossed the border into Nigeria to escape the fighting. Many are school-aged children and the United Nations and local authorities are trying to come up with a plan to provide education services for students who have not had access to schools since fleeing Cameroon.
